23 Ways I Use Essential Oils Every Day coming right at ya! Are you a fan of essential oils? I sure am. Here are some of the reasons why…

Why I Love Essential Oils

Several years ago my daughter accidentally stepped on an open pocket knife and it was SHARP. It cut open the bottom of her foot and started bleeding pretty badly. I knew Yarrow was good a good oil to stop bleeding so I ran to my oil supply and grabbed a bottle. Within a few seconds, the bleeding stopped. However, I could tell this was a pretty bad cut.

Now the craziest part of all this is she was in swimming lessons at the time and didn’t want to miss any of her lessons. She knew she would need to stay off of her foot so it could heal quickly. But, what surprised both of us is despite the fact that the cut was a good one she only missed one day of lessons. You see, Yarrow essential oil has the ability to close wounds and this speeds up the healing process. It also has antiseptic properties that aid against infections. It is an absolute must to have on hand at my house.

That is how I feel about many essential oils and Butterfly Express has the very best oils out there in my opinion. I have been using their oils for nearly 20 years and have always, always been very pleased. The employees are fantastic to work with. They ship quickly and the prices are very affordable

I apply and use oils in different ways. If I apply them directly on my skin I use a carrier oil. There are many different carrier oils available at Butterfly Express. I have used all of them and they all work great. Many of the oils are fantastic diffused and make your house smell fabulous. Diffusers are also available at Butterfly Express or Amazon.

If you use oils on laundry or flooring use caution. Some oils can stain so test them first. And, of course, none of this is intended to be used as medical advice. I’m just sharing what has worked for me.

Here is a short list of many ways I use essential oils Every. Single. Day.
